AEAI envisions a world where quality education will be accessible to all as the basis for mutual understanding, personal empowerment, and equitable societies throughout the world. Its mission is to advance the cause of Education for All, especially primary education, for vulnerable populations whose fundamental right to education is not respected or is in jeopardy.
AEAI has been active in Cambodia since 2003. Its work in Cambodia focuses on four priority themes: Access to Quality Education, Early Childhood Care and Education, Education for Girls and Women, and Inclusive Education. AEAI’s approach places great importance on the role of local stakeholders—people, communities and authorities—by actively engaging them in consultation processes and developing leadership capacity enabling meaningful and sustainable change. AEAI influences education policies in the formal and non-formal sectors by strengthening teaching methodologies, advocacy; building capacities of education staff.
In partnership with EAC, Aide et Action is leading a consortium of 17 national and international organizations to reach 59,592 out of school children with quality education programs. The Education for All: An Integrated Approach project will work in all 24 provinces of Cambodia and seeks to reach the most marginalized children to ensure that they receive a quality primary education.
